โ€œThere are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.โ€~ #AlbertEinstein . Fun fact: In the 1950โ€™s my mother told her team that she wanted to meet Albert Einstein. They laughed and said โ€˜Heโ€™s one of the greatest minds in history, heโ€™s never going to meet with you...โ€™ . Her response to them was...โ€™ you donโ€™t know until you ask...โ€™ . And so on a gray day in the early 1950โ€™s, my mother, Eartha Kitt, a little mixed race cotton picker from South Carolina, traveled from New York City to Princeton NJ and sat down with the Nobel Prize winner, Albert Einstein, in his office, where the two discussed philosophy and life.๐Ÿง . There are no images from their meeting, but my mother was always able to recount virtually every moment of their conversation. . An avid reader, my mother embraced deep, intellectual conversations. She got energy from hearing debates on topics that most of us shy away from. She would say, โ€œI am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma.โ€ #EarthaKitt . Oh, and... โ€œDonโ€™t be afraid to ask. Because you just never know...โ€ . #HeresToLife #SimplyEartha #accessoriesthatSAYsomething #statementnecklace #wisdomspeaks #womeninspiringwomen #EmbraceEveryDay #BeGrateful #BeKind

Spreading some ofย Eartha's 'earthiness' in the hopes that it will continue to grow, leaving kindness, acceptance and strength in its wake. . #SimplyEartha #accessoriesthatSAYsomething #ADaughtersTribute #womeninspiringwomen #rolemodels #celebritystyle #fashioninfluencers #animalprintlover #accessoriesaddict #silkscarves #musthave #fallfashion2018 . #shopinstagram #clicktoshop ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ“ธ @debrasomerville
I share my motherโ€™s heart and her legacy of love, kindness and acceptance, for moments like these. ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ Read Below โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โžก๏ธ Hi Kitt, Just a quick bracelet story I wanted to share with youโ€ฆ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € I originally bought your 'Here's To Life/Heart' bracelets for all my girls โ€ฆ. My wife, my 2 daughters , my 2 nieces, my sister-in-law, and 3 girls that work for meโ€ฆ..I know the bracelets have a lot of symbolism for you in respect and love for your mom, and they have taken on quite a meaning in my family now as well. All my girls never take it off!!! We then purchased more and again more now, just to have and share. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € We recently went away on vacation. We headed up to Manitoba up on the Hudson Bay. It was 2 days of travel to get to this remote part of Canada. For a 2 week period every year this little town is inundated with Polar Bears as they migrate out on to the ice to hunt. Pretty awesome experience , and on our travels north we met an Inuit woman who is native to Rankin inlet. We talked with her for about 2 hours , heard about living in this remote area and then about the murder of her son and the difficulties of helping to raise her young granddaughter. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Just as we were about to part ways, my wife reached to her wrist, looked at me and gave her a โ€œHereโ€™s to Life Braceletโ€. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € She welled up gave us the warmest hugs and then insisted on giving us her seal skin mittens. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € This is a moment , neither us will ever forget. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Thanks to you and your momโ€™s inspiration there is an inuit woman in Rankin Inlet wearing your bracelet. Another one of my girls :) โ€ฆ. D.M. . *********************** My mother may not physically be here anymore, but her heart continues to inspire and spread #Love #Kindness and #acceptance . I think she would be proud. ๐Ÿ˜Š๏ธ . โ™ฅ๏ธ LOVE MAKES US ALL STRONGER โ™ฅ๏ธ #Blessed #Gratitude #accessoriesthatSAYsomething #jewelrywithastory #jewelry #14kgold #SimplyEartha #ADaughtersTribute #jotd #jewelryaddict #style #jewelryline #accessories #legacy #HeresToLife

Who knew there was a #NationalScarfDay ? ๐Ÿงฃ . But, it is the perfect day to introduce my new #animalprint #oversizedscarf ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ“ฏ . Itโ€™s sheer, chic and so #ontrend ๐Ÿ˜Ž BUT... like the woman who is my inspiration, itโ€™s A REAL ORIGINAL. ๐ŸŒŸ ๐Ÿ˜˜ My motherโ€™s quote: โ€œThe price we pay for being ourselves is worth itโ€ is written on the back, along with her hand-drawn heart. โœ๐Ÿฝ โ™ฅ๏ธ . I think a large scarf is a #fashionmusthave and I always travel with at least one. They are the perfect accent piece, adding color, personality and comfort to any outfit. .

โ€œThe price we pay for being ourselves is worth it.โ€ ~ Eartha Kitt ๐Ÿ˜˜ . #BeWhoYouAre even when your kids roll their eyes. ๐Ÿ™„ . I was no different from any other kid and would roll my eyes (although not in front of her ๐Ÿ˜ณ) and cringe at my motherโ€™s uniqueness, praying that no one I knew would see her. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ . Of course, when youโ€™re raised by a strong independent thinker, it takes some growing up before you start to realize how #blessed you really were and are. I am #grateful that I came to know that, at a relatively young age, and that my mother and I had many years together appreciating that gift. . #Love makes us ALL stronger. #FeelLove #ShowLove #BeLove โ™ฅ๏ธ . #shareyourheart #beyoutiful #bekind #smile ๐Ÿ˜Š . #SimplyEartha #accessorieswithalegacy #accessorieslover #fashioninfluencers #celebritystyle #mothersanddaughters #rolemodels #teachyourchildrentolovethemselves #ADaughtersTribute

#tbt #nationalgriefawarenessday ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ . I'm not sure we ever stop grieving the ones we have loved so much and lost. It just changes as time goes on, and becomes a feeling we get accustomed to carrying. . My mother encouraged me to take the legacy she built, add my own personal creativity and continue to share with you, her fans, old and new. . Her talent and body of work in the entertainment world will live on thru recordings and other outlets, but it is her #legacy of #love #kindness #acceptance and #empowerment that I choose to build on, adding to the foundation laid for me by the woman I called Mom. . I was blessed with a mother who taught and gave me the greatest gift there is... Love. ๐Ÿ˜ โค๏ธAnd as I share her heart and wisdom, through my stories and my designs, I hope to affect change, albeit in a small way, like a pebble in the pond of life, because, as I was taught, it only takes one human being to make an impact on another. . Join me in my quest to #BeKind #BeGrateful and #smile ๐Ÿ˜Š Blessings are meant to be shared. ๐Ÿ˜˜ . We all have a legacy. What will yours be? .

Parents, this one's for you. ๐Ÿ˜Š๏ธ #BackToSchool #anxietyhelp #calmtechniques #EarthaKitt #words #DontPanic ๐Ÿ™ . Ah, my mother's wisdom was simple, yet profound. She didnโ€™t need many words to make a point. She would often say, โ€œDonโ€™t Panic. It doesnโ€™t change a thing, and only makes it difficult to see the options that may be in front of you." . Easier said than done, I know, but as a person who can be very anxious at times, wearing these words helps remind me to take a beat and breathe. . My mother taught me the importance of focusing on your breath, of course, very important for singing, but even more important for dealing with stressful moments in our lives. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Square breathing, a technique my mother used, and one I have passed along to my children, is a great tool. . Hereโ€™s how you do it: Start by breathing in through your nose to the count of 4; hold your breath for the count of 4; breathe out through your nose to the count of 4, and hold that out breath for the count of 4, before taking in a new breath and repeating the steps again. Focus on the breath and the count. Eyes open or closed, whichever is more comfortable. . I have found this exercise to be extremely helpful and calming, whether itโ€™s done for 1 minute or 15. Give it a try. Teach it to your kids. Itโ€™s a wonderful way to prepare for sleep. . Take a beat. Take a breath. Donโ€™t Panic. You've got this! . #SimplyEartha #accessorieswithalegacy #jewelrywithastory #mylegacy #loveyourselffirst #accessoriesoftheday #jotd #accessorieslovers #staycalm #braceletswithmeaning #shoplinkinbio #motherdaughterteam #wordstoliveby #breathe โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Click link in bio โฌ†๏ธ and join the email list so you donโ€™t miss any more #Kittisms ๐Ÿ˜
